    minor update: i wonder how the cyclist being a cop will affect the investigation? as the cyclist was also an 18-year vet (and `one of their own`), i cannot imagine they could easily argue, e.g., not knowing road rules, etc.

    Cyclist killed by truck was OPP officer
    Jun. 7, 2006. 05:13 PM
    BOB MITCHELL
    STAFF REPORTER


    An OPP officer has died after a cycling accident on Tremaine Rd. near Derry Rd. in Milton.
    Sgt Gregory Stobbart, 45, an 18-year veteran of the force, was critcally injured yesterday in collision with a dump trunk.

    He and his family had just recently moved to Burlington after being transferred to the Caledon detachment from Killaloe Detachment on May 23.

    The fatality continues to be probed by Halton's traffic bureau and anybody with information is asked to contact them at 905-825-4777 or 905-634-1831 ext 5123 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

    Tremain Rd. had been closed to traffic for most yesterday but re-opened around 5p.m.

    Halton Police said Stobbart succumbed to his injuries at about 9:30 p.m at Hamilton General Hospital.

    Police said the collision occurred when Stobbart was cycling and the dump trunk was travelling north on Tremaine Rd. at about 12:30 p.m.

    Initial investigation revealed the right side mirror of the five-ton truck struck the officer as the vehicle was overtaking him.

    The truck driver from Grimsby wasn't injured.

    Me, operator, lymbzero, and some other new guys were waiting for you at 8pm to 9pm behind Honest Ed's. There was no sight of you or any others. So we basically rode around chinatown, bumped into Ill Mitch and rode through Kensington, and then to Dundas Square for some trackstand chillin'...

    yep, t'is. I guess he got tired of trying to trade it.

    That sucks about the cyclist and the dump truck. Cop or not, he was a brother. The driver will likely get charged under the highway traffic act and get off with a fine. I'm getting really ill about all the fatalities this year. Is it me or has there been a hell of a lot more this year than years previous?

    What a useless addendum. Of course he wasn't.

    I like that red. I need to get my frame repainted like that when I get it back. I also want the shinyness back as well.

    Jumping from 16 down to 14 is a pretty big change. I would try a 15t first if I were you.

    As far as helmets and degradation goes..the official company line is the styro bases of most helmets degrade from U.V. and should be replaced every 3-4 years. Obviously replacement after a crash is a good idea as well. I am not sure whether this time frame is really the time frame or the helmet manufacturers trying to flog more product.
